A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect for most of the Wabash Valley through midnight tonight. The second of two waves of winter precipitation will continue in the form of snow through the afternoon. If you are north of I-70, it looks like this event will mainly impact areas to your south. Along the I-70 corridor, expect to see an additional 1″-2″ of accumulations. We’ll see an additional 2″-4″ of snow on top of what has already fallen stretching from around Olney, IL through Loogootee, IN. Snow begins to taper off from west to east around the 7 o’clock hour tonight.
We’ve received lots of photos and snowfall reports and we thank you for all of those submissions. The cut-off from north to south is quite drastic. In Indiana, we’re seeing around 1″ in Rockville with reports as high as 10″ in Vincennes. Same in Illinois. Casey is reporting around 1.5″ while Clay City has seen near 7.5″ + nearly a half an inch of ice accumulation. Keep in mind these are not final numbers as many of these places are still adding to their snowfall totals.
In Greene County, IN, where snow continues to fall, they’ve picked up about 7″.
Roads will continue to be very slick during the overnight hours even though the precipitation will come to and end this evening. Skies clear out and it turns bitterly cold. Temps will drop back near 10° tonight. Highs Saturday will only be near 22 with mostly sunny skies. More winter precip moves in Sunday.
